I clearly remember trying so hard to be good. I tried and tried but never felt like I had my mission accomplished. The day I confessed my sin and asked Jesus to forgive and become Lord of my life was the day I knew I needed Him to be good. My desperate search was over; Jesus was the answer my hungry heart strived to find. In a moment He made me clean, reborn, whole, and new.
Desperate No More
Desperate soul – desperate no more;|
What was an empty place is now filled with the Lord.
Seeking, reaching; hearts for answers search,
Striving for assurance in their good works.
Trying and failing to the right way go;
But in an instant the truth is known.
The gentle help of Holy Spirit the heart prepares,
To hear and recognize the truth when shared.
In an instant the miracle takes place;
The desperate, lost soul is saved by grace.
Not one good reason is such a gift bestowed,
Other than God’s desire to draw into His fold.
The lost is found, darkness is invaded by the Light;
The once blind is given sight.
The diseased and poor is now richly made whole.
The outcast is brought into God’s eternal fold.
Rich in God’s favor and flavored with His love,
You are marked as precious property of God above.
Now dressed in robes of righteousness and peace;
Given a new heart to cause the Kingdom increase.
Desperate no more, faith in the Word is planted in.
As His bride the hope of Jesus’ return now rules within.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
